Frescotennis Boundaries and Bounces: The entire tennis court (with “Doubles Lines”) is played and (0-2) bounces are allowed on a player's court before returning. A second bounce can be out-of-bounds and still be considered a "Live Ball". If a ball ever bounces (3) times consecutively, it is immediately rendered a “Dead Ball” and made inactive. A new ball is served to start the new point.
Each point begins with one player verbally stating the score and commencing service to the other(s) to begin the point. The server starts by standing within (5x5) feet of the center line marker behind the back line – the “Frescotennis Serve Box”. The returner has more box space and may stand anywhere in their centered (8x6) foot “Return Box”. The server must serve the ball in-bounds within (8) feet (from the centered back-line, four feet in each direction) and the ball must reach the receiving player(s) in one bounce. The server may not enter the court until initial contact has been made by the paddle of the returner. The receiving player is not permitted to cross the back line with his or her feet before making legal ball contact. Once paddle contact has been officially established by the returner, a LIVE-BALL has been created and the point is played out and decided.
Matches consist of “Best Of 7” sets with each match concluding when one player wins (4) sets. A player must score 5 POINTS to win a single set. The standard for tournament play consists of a "Best of 3" match structure.
